Hi All,

First official post here.

My GLC came with 255 /45/20 Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres.

I think they will all need replacement at some point in the near future, I'd like to know ( given other threads on hre about cracking and whatnot) what do you UK guys go with.

Looked on tyre leader and Scorpion Verde's are ~£130 a corner. However, there are the same ( what look , although developed for Audi) for ~£10 cheaper per corner ( whats the difference?!)

Any recommendations?

Thanks

As they are the only thing keeping you in contact with the road I wouldn’t skimp on cheap tyres. I’ve had three GLC and out of them the best tyres I’ve had were Goodyear Eagle sport All Season run flats. I’ve just sold the car with 23K on the clock over two & half years and they still had 5mm on the rear and 4mm on the front.
ive also had Vredesteins Quatrac 5 all season which were also very good.
All season tyres were fitted by MB to address the skipping / wheel judder issue on some older models and I would swear by them for UK use.
For years I’ve always had All Seasons fitted to our cars and I’ll be fitting All Season to my 300d when it arrives shortly 👍

I'm currently looking at the Goodyear Wrangler, Goodyear 4 seasons and the michelin x climate tyres, rices range from £138 - £170 a corner.

In the UK i've found a 17" and 18" space saver kit - presumably disc diameter is the key to which size you need ?

I've already ordered the spare from the link I shared above. And, given that I'm across the pond, I thing the shipping wouldn't be worth it. But, thanks anyway. :)

hi, this is my first post on here, I ended up here in my quest for some new rubber for my 250 GLC, its currently running Michelin Latitude Sport 3, which are about shot.. Then I read all the info about the juddering and the fact that MB dealer are potentially replacing stock tyres for all seasons..... So my question is, is this still happening, are dealers replacing for allseason tyres?
My main question seems to be answered, this will be to go for allseason tyres to stop the juddering/crabbing, obviously everyone has their faves, re tyres, I am prob gonna go Goodyear Eagle sport All Season see what my local dealer will do them for.
Just didnt want to fork out unnecearily

Our 250d had Goodyear eagle sport All Season Run Flats + New Knuckle fitted FOC under warranty.

This combination virtually fixes the Crabbing - still a hint of Judder when cold.

Tyre wear is significantly reduced on these new All Season tyres. Although wear on the Front outer edges is still noticeably higher than the rears.

Recommend swapping tyres - front to rear - to balance wear.

For reference - Original factory supplied tyres we’re totally scrubbed-out after 12k miles 🤔

Replacement Goodyear Eagle Sport Run Flats with new Steering Knuckles - geometry, have done an additional 24k miles with 5mm remaining 👍
